"I don't want to just mess with your head. I want to mess with your life," King said at a weekend conference at his alma mater, the University of Maine. "I want you to miss appointments, burn dinner, skip your homework. I want you to tell your wife to take that moonlight stroll on the beach at Waikiki with the resort tennis pro while you read a few more chapters." King was keynote speaker at a conference on his works. Among the topics covered were censorship and student choice. King's books are banned in some schools. "What I tell kids is don't get mad, get even," King said. "Run, don't walk, to the first library you can find and read what they're trying to keep out of your eyes. Read what they're trying to keep out of your brains." KING Alabama can't forget Cole * BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Four decades ; ago, Nat King.Cole was attacked during a » show in Alabama and never performed * there again. Now the late singer is being jj used to draw visitors to his home state, jj Cole's song "Unforgettable" will be «r used as part of the state of Alabama's new * tourism campaign. % The new slogan will be unveiled Nov. 4. «" It will replace the old theme, "Stars Fell * on Alabama," in order to identify the •£ state with one of America's favorite * songs, said state Tourism Director . Aubrey Miller. The tribute to Cole is a far cry from 1956, when the Montgomery-born singer was attacked by racists during a performance at Birmingham's municipal auditorium. ' Dinner gave her faith in him NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The way to Faith Hill's heart is through her stomach. The country singer says she was won over by the culinary skills of fellow performer Tim McGraw, who became her husband last week. Romance blossomed after McGraw invited her over for some home cooking. "I was thinking, 'Yeah, right, homemade...' " Hill said. But Me- i Graw surprised her with the quality of \ his chicken, dumplings and corn bread, j "It tasted just like my mom's," Hill said. ] From Wire Service Reports !

Reader makes a big stink about careless grooming Dear Ann Landers: I read with interest the letter in your column from "Max in Utah," whose lady friend called him on the telephone often. He liked her very much and loaned her sizable sums of money on more than one occasion. They had friendly and pleasant phone conversations, but she refused to go out with him. He could not understand why. May I suggest a possibility? Maybe he had careless grooming habits and unpleasant odors she couldn't tolerate. In my case, an interesting, well-informed man whose company I enjoy reeks of mothballs. What's worse, he insists on disinfecting every load of laundry with Lysol. Even his car smells like a hospital. ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. Once, I spent an hour in his apartment and had the worst coughing spell I've ever experienced. All my eye makeup washed away, and my throat was raw for hours. I would never risk going there again. This man is considered one of the town's most outstanding citizens. He participates in activities that support a variety of good causes. He has been single for several years and is considered a real catch. I wonder how many women besides me were turned off by the mothballs and disinfectant. — Nose All in Oregon Dear Oregon: It's too bad no one has the courage to level with that outstanding citizen who reeks of mothballs and disinfectant. It would be a tremendous favor if someone told him how his obsession with eliminating bacteria creates such an unpleasant aroma. Why don't you be the one to clue him TV TONIGHT in? The rewards could be enormous. P.S.: As for Max in Utah, that telephone sweetie was interested only in his bankroll. Dear Ann Landers: "Concerned Parent in San Diego" was right on the money about the perils of discarded cigarette butts. My parents, both smokers, used to bundle us kids into the back seat of the car for weekend trips to our grandparents' home. During the Kentucky winters, we always had on mittens, coats and scarves. One time, my mother finished her cigarette and threw the butt out of the front window. Unfortunately, the butt flew into the back seat and landed in the scarf that was wrapped tightly around my 5-year-old neck. I began screaming, and my father pulled the car over. By the time he got my scarf off, I had a severe burn on my neck. The doctor cleaned the wound and told . me I would have a nice scar. He was right. ; Ann, I get so angry every time I see a cigarette butt fly out a car window, not only because of the pain of my experience but because it sickens me to see the nasty sea of butts lining our curbs. I get upset with smokers who believe it • is their right to smoke anywhere at any time because they "aren't hurting anyone but themselves." That's not true. Secondhand smoke, litter, fires, accidental burns — these are the problems innocent non-smokers face. Keep encouraging people to be responsible for their actions. It's a lesson worth repeating. — Virginia Beach, Va. Dear Va. Beach: You can count on me. Thanks for a letter that Is sure to strike some raw nerves.
